The emerald ash borer is the most serious threat to our forests today ( outside of man). It is primarily spread to distant areas by transporting infected wood. The ban on moving firewood is critical to prevent the spread. In many states moving firewood without a permit is illegal.

You cannot bring firewood into Florida. You have to buy locally. I imagine it's similar in many states.

And, the parks we stayed in FL all had burn bans.

Iowa has a firewood movement ban.
Do not transport it across the state lines.
They also strongly suggest not moving it from county to county as well.

I'm like you....I wasn't too anxious to buy a propane pit ......but since using it some I've changed my mind.........
we heat our house with wood and after this long cold winter I'm tired of fooling with wood

We stayed at Topsail Hill Preserve SP. They had no fire directly on the
ground rule. We knew this from previous trips so we brought one of these--
Hampton Bay Lawrence 29 in. Round Wrought Iron Fire Pit-DS-16595 - The Home Depot

The best $40 I've spent in a while. After a week of fires it still looks
OK. I might give it a shot of hi-temp paint one day but it's good to go
for next FL trip!

OK some parks do ban fires altogether. Not all of Florida tho.
I can understand that especially if
they are in a fire danger zone OR crowded. We've camped in CGs before
that I wished had a ban. They were packed and the smoke was dense.
One comes to mind that is in a little valley. On weekends when it's full the smoke is annoying at best and choking at worst. People do love their
camp fires

If it's the emerald ASH borer we're concerned with, why not just ban the import of ash? Looks to me like we're using a sledge hammer to drive a tack.

I like others would hate to see the day where your "Campfire" is propane, nothing like that crackle and pop. We stayed in a CG in eastern Ontario abd for $5.00 got this huge nylon feed bag......thought well this could be good. Looked inside our new found treasure and it was a bag full of lumber cut offs like someone raided a construction site. Kiln dried wood sure did burn hot!
